For those who love hand made lace.
This group is for Cluny, LePuy and continental guipure bobbin laces -- straight laces with a 4 strand braid/plait ground. Designs may be geometric (Cluny) or floral (continental guipure). Cluny designs often have a snaky clothwork trail meandering through the design. This trail uses the "passée a cheval" method, not the same as the Bedfordshire method. LePuy designs usually have a cloth trail, but it is worked somewhat differently from either Beds or Cluny. LePuy designs often have some very complex braided/plaited grounds. This group also includes Danish guipure lace, which are usually floral.
